Hello out there, I am new to the forum and new to keeping Chameleons. I have a ten month old female Veiled named Fiona. I have alot of expierence with keeping amphibians and know that there's a huge difference in keeping reptiles especially chameleons. I have seven brown anoles (my only other reptiles) and they are happy and healthy and breeding like crazy. I started with one male and two females and they already laid twelve eggs and four have hatched and doing well. Well getting back to Fiona, I have her in a 18 by 18 by 36 inch Repti breeze enclosure and will upgrade to the extra large one as she grows. She has lots of climbing branches with broad leaf fake plants and horizontal basking pearches, vertical climbing vines, a little dripper drinking system, UVB flouresent bulb 8.0, 100 watt repti hallogen basking bulb, and a 100 watt purple night bulb by Zilla. I also have a repti fogger mist machine that looks cool but I'm not sure how healthy it is for her (please let me know if this is helpful or detrimental to her). I keep it on a few hours a day but it's hard to keep humidity in the repti breeze and living in dry Colorado doesn't help either. I also heard that she needs good air circulation so I have a fan on the other side of the room to keep the air moving. The temp in her cage is around 80 during the day and 75 during the night, and 90 to 95 in her basking area, there are a few landings under the basking site so she can choose how heated she needs to be. I want to put some live plants in her enclosure but need some help on what plants are good for her. I found some in books I've been reading but when I went to the garden store they had so many different kinds under the same name, maybe it was the genus. But I didn't want to buy one that will make her sick, so if you know of any please let me know. I made her a large tree that sits in my room with fake leaves, it's about 5 feet tall with 5 or 6 branches reaching out in all directions so that she can get out of her house and roam somewhat freely. She seems to enjoy it and sits at the top and stares at the tv. I use a stick to move her around allowing her to climb on it at her own will so not to stress her out. I feed her gut loaded crickets, roaches, superworms every other day with a calcium and vitamin dusting once a week, (wax worms occasionally) and Romaine lettuce tied up above her highest branch. She seems happy and healthy and has a hardy appetite, very active, with no mites. If I am doing something wrong with her or you have some tips on how to make her life more comfortable and stressfree please let me know so she can have a healthy long life. I also spray her with a vitamin/electrolyte supplement every morning. I also would like to know if a backdrop would be helpful to reduce stress rather than the plain white wall of my room, she is also in a section of my room that gets the least amount of traffic. In the summer I plan on taking her house outside during the day to give her natural sunlight, is that a good idea? I know that this is a long tread but I'd like to know if I am being a good owner. Thanks for reading. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
